Paris, France: French club Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) on Saturday announced that Brazilian striker Neymar Jr has signed a contract extension for a further three seasons with the club until June 30, 2025. Since joining the club in 2017, the Brazilian international (103 caps, 64 goals) has carved out a place among the Paris Saint-Germain club legends. With 85 goals and 51 assists in his 112 games for the club, PSG's twinkle-toed no.10 has also broken into the top ten scorers in the club's history.
